We weren't craving anything specific so we decided upon a Chinese buffet to cover the bases. The food wasn't great and it was cold. I'm not sure of a good place in Cedar Rapids for a buffet but this one isn't it.

I love eating there. I have to eat there at least once a month. I love the seafood variety, sushi, salads, and the option to choose your raw food and the cook it for you. Very reasonable price for what you get. I recommend going there.

Very typical of these kinds of places. Good selection of hot and cold entrees and a small variety of sushi at lunch time. Build your own stir-fry was available, but we passed.

I love this place. I have been there for more than I can remember. See food, sushi, and a big variety of food. You shouldn't regret going there.

Went with family, the food was ok, the place was clean! But was not impressed with the food. My son liked the ice cream. Daughter thought the sushi was good.

The food was fresh and stocked. My drink never got close to being empty. The variety was tremendous and again very fresh. The pepper chicken was to die for.

The ice cream was good...... I just couldn't find anything that I liked and it seemed a little on the dirty side. It was very affordable just not that good

We walked here from our hotel for dinner after recommendations from the hotel clerk and fairly positive reviews here. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The buffet had a decent selection. For the most part the food had decent flavor, but I found much of the buffet over cooked. The steak from the grill was very poor quality cut,... More
